Bacon + Biscuits

Operation Sourdough Biscuits was a success!

Last night, I made the “sponge” which was just the started I’d been feeding all week plus 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of warm water. I let that sit in a bowl on the counter all night, covered.

While I made the biscuits this morning, Nick made some bacon gravy to have with them.

I love weekend breakfasts :) We can take all the time we want, stay in pajamas until 11 am, and just relax with our coffee.

We also had clementines and some coffee that Nick ground in his new fancy grinder. It was delicious!

The biscuits are so chewy! They’re very different than the normal butter-or-crisco-in-the-dough biscuits; they’re not very flaky, but they still have a great texture.

The strangest thing about making these biscuits compared to normal recipes is that there is no fat in the dough itself – no butter, no crisco.

But…after you cut out the biscuits you dip each one in warmed bacon fat before baking.

Yum. I think this is a great way to kickoff the weekend  :)

We’re going to look at a chain link dog pen for Maggie in a few hours – so I’ve got to milk this relaxing morning for all its worth!
